A mathematical programming method is presented for solving problems of (i) determining the moments and rotations and (ii) determining the safety factor of reinforced concrete frames. The proposed method is essentially a reformulation of those developed by O. De Donato and G. Maier. However, the reformulation results in a new mathematical programming model for which an efficient algorithm is developed. The advantage of the proposed method is mainly computational; in fact it requires roughly one half computer time and storage space as compared with those De Donato and Maier employ to solve the same problem.
